Struggle in our Bodies and Minds:

Gandhi Quote of the day: "Religions are different roads converging upon the same point. What does it matter that we take different roads so long as we reach the same point?"

Thought for today: "Criticism is an indirect form of self-boasting." Emmet Fox

Struggle in our Bodies and Minds: by Thich Nhat Hanh.

"We all have the tendency to struggle in our bodies and in our minds. We believe that happiness is possible only in the future. The realization that we have already arrived, that we don't have to travel any further, that we are already here, can give us peace and joy. The conditions for our happiness are already sufficient. We only need to allow ourselves to be in the present moment, and we will be able to touch them. What are we looking for to be happy? Everything is already here. We do not need to put an object in front of us to run after, believing that until we get it, we cannot be happy. That object is always in the future, and we can never catch up to it. We are already in the Pure Land, the Kingdom of God. We are already a Buddha. We only need to wake up and realize we are already here."

Have a sunny day. Fine Art and Crystals and Gems.
